SB 226 CEQA Guidelines Update - OPR Transmits to Natural Resources Agency

The Governor's Office of Planning and Research (OPR) is pleased to announce that it has transmitted its final proposal for updates to the CEQA Guidelines addressing streamlining for infill development pursuant to SB 226 (Simitian, 2011). Input submitted during OPR's outreach process contributed significantly to OPR's final Guidelines proposal. A copy of OPR Director Ken Alex's transmittal letter to John Laird, California Secretary for Natural Resources, as well as materials associated with the final proposal, are available on OPR's website: http://opr.ca.gov/s_sb226.php. The Natural Resources Agency will soon commence the formal rulemaking process to adopt the proposed additions. Those who wish to be involved in the Agency's process should sign up for the SB 226 listserv at: http://ceres.ca.gov/ceqa/guidelines-sb226. Those who are currently signed up on the listserv will continue to receive notices via e-mail. If you prefer to be mailed written notice of the Natural Resources Agency's rulemaking activities, please e-mail your request to CEQA.Guidelines@ceres.ca.gov or mail your request to Heather Baugh, Assistant General Counsel, Natural Resources Agency, 1416 Ninth Street, Suite 1311, Sacramento, CA 95814.
